LOS ANGELES DAILY NEWS: EDITORIAL POSTSCRIPT -

January 27, 2012

THE trustees of the California State University did the right thing on Wednesday by adopting a 10 percent cap on raises for CSU presidents.

It was a bit of a surprise. The trustees were expected to endorse a new policy by the chancellor that would open the door wide to outrageous executive pay. That morning, this newspaper and others in Southern California editorialized against that policy and supported a cap, like the one pushed by state Sen. Ted Lieu in SB 959. The trustees listened.
